What's Your Addiction?

Good morning guys! I woke up feeling super excited this morning. No particular reason though. It could be because I woke up next to my dearest friend; Ginika, it could be because I woke up with a fresh determination to make some lifestyle changes and this time I'm feeling like I'm going to see them through (but let's see if I still feel this way by 12 noon. LOL), it could be because I've got the weekend stretched out before me with nothing to do but lounge and go to the movies/ice cream/drinks/dinner/visits..., it could be because of you guys, or then again it could just be because I'm so happy to be alive and I feel like I don't have a care in the world (once again, let's see if I still feel this way by 12 noon)!
     Ok, enough of the chatting. Let's get to business. 

First off, I want to know YOUR addiction. I started this post with Candy Crush in mind, everyone seems to be needing some rehab for this game. Please I need to know; what is it about Candy Crush that's got you addicted? I'm very curious because I've never played the game and now that I see everyone clutching their phones and iPads like their lives depend on it, it frightens  me even more. 

But speaking about addictions, have you ever been addicted to something so bad that no matter how hard you tried to break away from it you just couldn't. Have you broken out of your addiction? How did you do it?

You guys already know what mine was. A few weeks back someone dealing with porn addiction and masturbation addiction mailed me. Unfortunately I'm not skilled to help beyond offering a listening ear and encouragement. 

So two things; 
Have you got a Candy Crush Addiction? If yes, WHY?
What's your addiction?

I stalked Genevieve Nnaji's Instagram page last night.


  1. will download dah today

  2. Never played the game too as a matter of fact temple run almost gave me an heart attack. So trying it out is a big no for me.

    1. Lol I understand that heart attack feeling, I was playing 'Danger rush' on my bro's phone the other day, found out my BlackBerry dosent have the app, it dosent even have candy crush or so I think, somebody help.

  3. Tee,you have just succeeded in advertising candy crush. lol.

  4. L̳̿Ö̤̣̇☺ː̗̀(=)))ː̖́☺Ö̤̣̇L̳̿ I won't lie mehn candy crush is super addictive I play it anywhere anytime. I.e while eating, breastfeeding, taking a poop, brushing, about to sleep knowing that I hv just 2hrs, 3hrs if I'm lucky. I'll b like lemme see if I can pass this level bfor I sleep hahaha if I could do it while bathing I would. Infact it was going to be my next line of action after reading ur blog and guess what I have a headache from lack of sleep cos sean decided last night was the perfect time to practise some smiles and baby talk, he's asleep now instead of me to sleep too na lie oh I must read TT and play candy crush smhfm.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
